KISMIF programs provide opportunities for people with and without disabilities to socialize together in friendly leisure settings.
KISMIF (Keep it Simple - Make it Fun) , a non-profit 501(c)(3), Recreational Therapy Program provides opportunities for individuals with and without disabilities, ages sixteen and older, to socialize together in friendly leisure settings. Family members and friends have the chance to paddle a canoe, hike on a mountain trail, relax on the beach, or just sit and talk for a while around a campfire.
As the name implies, the KISMIF Foundation was established due to the limited number of programs for disabled individuals that specialize in recreational activities such as camping, hiking, water sports, and winter sports. The whole basis of KISMIF is to get back to the basics of enjoying the great outdoors while enjoying the company of others in a warm, inviting, and friendly environment.
KISMIF programs foster self-advocacy and personal responsibility as a means to gaining greater independence and self-sufficiency.
In addition to recreation programs, KISMIF provides services that positively impact the lives of individuals with disabilities, as well as address concerns of their family members, co-workers and employers.
